, this goes much wider than what is happening within the borders of ukraine, and in many russia itself, president putin ordering this state of preparedness. that's being typified in this russia, t -- at least the information we're getting here in kiev. you can imagine when the situation is so volatile, people will be looking over their shoulders to see how this plays out. and of course it's not only the eastward flank, but also the european flank as well, and the prospect of europe becoming further involved, everyone playing this very, very ca care -- carefully, does they don't want to exacerbate the situation. you mentioned about the russia speakers being concerned about what a new administration in kiev may force on them,er so the russian speakers there very nervous about their future, although the parliament says it is not at the moment at least discussing accept aretism. >> there are so many rumors but one that is relevant, that the president is hiding on board a russian naval vessel down on the black sea, but we'll get more from moscow as soon as we can. i want to ask you b a eve
with ukraine. but the prime minister, said that the situation is putting russia's interests at risk. that's the same thing russian officials said right before invading the former soviet republic of georgia in 2008. now u.s. officials are warning russ russia, do not make a repeat in the ukraine. with us now the former defense secretary william cohen. he also served in congress during much of the cold war. secretary cohen, how serious is this situation? the development of it so far? >> well, the situation in ukraine is quite serious, because you have this great divide ideological divide within the country itself. the russians at this point appear to be engaged in some chest pounding. and i think they must take care. the united states is kind of warning them not to go to a cold war mentality. but that warning has to be with some caution as well. we don't want to give the implication to the ukranian people we're about to commit military forces to the region. and i think the signal to the russians has to be, you just invested 50 or $60 billion in building some goodwill. that will dissipate imm

there they need a thisioning government and is a very dynamic, evolving situation. the ukraine should not represent a challenge to any of the developed market banks or the local recovery story. these crises can start in small countries. the asian crisis started and many people would argue that was back in thailand in 1997 and it had further reaching consequences and we arguably live in a world that is more it now. can you see a situation where a slowdown in emerging market economies will have a feedback on to the developed world? >> it's very different than the late 1990's. there were not enough foreign reserves to handle the money leaving to finance the deficits. key point i would emphasize is let's go back to 300% of the total capital exposed to latin america. today when i do the analysis, all of the developed market angst have about 70% of their capital exposed to the emerging markets overall. the short answer is we just don't see a banking crisis contagion risk from the emerging markets right now. >> alex, thank you for joining us today. friedman, cio, from ubs wealth management l
. in this case it seems to be clearly linked to the ukraine in a situation where with the u.s. and western europe and the european union on one side, rush on the other, they have been allied behind different forces in the ukraine. >> you are so good at the crazy politics of europe. who is the lead voice, the lead institution of europe to push back? all along, the institution that really has been allied with a group of pro-democratic forces in the ukraine has been the european union. as we know, this all began late last year when victory and a coat which decided to get to signing a trade pact with the , but then instead decided to remain allied with russia in a trade union with them, which upset many people who wanted to see ukraine go more to the way of western europe. issue here is that the united states and european union nations have warned russia that they should not do a military intervention in the ukraine. republic,ormer soviet but a mere putin has called it a brother nation, but to actually interfere and invade would be a huge step and a real change. potentially we have russia moving ship
. >> secretary kerry also spoke very frankly about the situation in ukraine. he declined to speculate on the whereabouts of the country's missing ousted leader. kerry also had some advice for russian president vladimir putin whose recent testing of his air and combat readiness has been a concern. >> mr. putin should listen carefully to ukrainians who have voiced their desire for change. we do not believe this should be an east/west, russia/united states. this is not rocky iv. believe me, we don't see it that way. >>> still ahead on "the reid report" they're making sure his legacy is not forgotten. we'll look at how the community is struggling to heal and the nation is struggling on issues of gun control and race. >>> next, house democrats try to force a vote on minimum wage after it stalls in the senate. is this a winning strategy for 2014? ...and a choice take 6 tylenol in a day which is 2 aleve for... ...all day relief. hmm.

the series of protests that have led us to the situation were triggered off by summits from the european union. ukraine was scheduled to sign an agreement with the eu, an agreement of association and joining a free trade area. against it.ecided this is widely understood to be under pressure from russia, set, and a series of protests broke out in the hearts of key avenue -- kiev. they morphed into the huge scale demonstrations that we saw. there were protests against from yanukovych's decision and move to his rule and the whole system of government in ukraine itself. thefocus has been on independent square in kiev. of weeks,ast couple it has been that decision to use force to press and on the protesters that has triggered off the series of events that has led to international intervention and the removal of yanukovych. there've been efforts to put ukraine on the path to a piece revolution and to try to intentionally address many of the protesters' grievances about the system of government as a way of rebalancing the president -- power between the president and parliament. where we are now

into ukraine. the message is to president putin, it's a serious situation, we need to work together. the united states and the european union are not trying to take ukraine into its orbit at the expense of russia. we want to see ukraine that's independent, which it is, but peaceful and hopefully one day prosperous because right now it's an economic basket case. and so we need to see russia cooperate with the eu and the united states to see if we can't stabilize the economic situation because basically that's really at the core of the country's problems right now. >> it absolutely is. and i wonder what other end game there possibly could be here other than somebody, whether it's the u.s., a combination of international bodies, extending billions of dollars of aid to ukraine or if there's some other outcome that we're not thinking about at the moment. >> well, the united states, the imf, eu are all interested in providing economic assistance, but it has to be tied to economic reforms, and this has been the challenge in the past. russia has moved in with its $15 billion aid proposal without any co
